Are you eligible for a free NHS Health Check?
If you are aged 40-74 and registered with a GP in the borough, you can get checked to help you prevent heart disease, a stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and certain types of dementia later on in life.
An NHS Health Check usually takes 30-45 minutes and involves a few simple questions about your lifestyle and medical history.
Your height, weight and blood pressure will be measured and there is a finger-prick blood test to measure your cholesterol.
All results are given at the appointment.
This Conservative Council is working with the local NHS to promote the campaign as part of its Heart Town programme to reduce heart disease, as heart disease is responsible for a third of all deaths in the borough.
Find out if you are eligible for a free NHS Health Check by visiting www.croydon.gov.uk/nhshealthchecks or emailing CROCCG.firstname.lastname@example.org.
